Artwork and Design Services

We offer custom artwork design where you tell us an idea and we will run with it. This service is $50.00 per hour and billed in quarter hour (15 minute) increments with a minimum time of 30 minutes ($25.00).

Color Accuracy

Due to variances in computer monitors and printers, colors in the artwork proof or mock up may not be true to the finished product. This holds true even more so when a design must have colors reduced to comply with our current capabilities. We can currently print 5 separate colors on a dark colored shirt or 6 on a light colored shirt. If your design has more than this amount, it will be reduced down to the capabilities we have which means loss of detail and some color. We will make every effort to match your colors on a given design, however, cannot guarantee this as it is the nature of the work.

If you desire a specific color match, please specify the color by providing either a physical sample or listing a corresponding Pantone Ink Color (PMS color) on your purchase order. Additional color matching fees apply of $5.00 per color.
